How Do You Find the Perfect Photographer for Your Wedding?

Without doubt, your wedding is one of the most important events of your life – so it makes sense that you will want to capture every second of this special day.  You will want your day to be captured by professionals, whom are not only great with a camera, but specialize in weddings. How do you find the perfect photographer for your wedding? Here are some tips to keep in mind:  

  • Different Photographers have different styles. For instance, if you are planning a more causal wedding, you might not be satisfied with someone who takes classic wedding photos. The reciprocal statement is just as valid too: if you want to have a formal wedding, you might not feel as comfortable with a photographer whose style is very casual.  
  • Read the contract. No, really read it! You should know all the details of your contractual agreement with your photographer, from how many hours you have booked to whether or not they will edit photos. You should become familiar with what you are charged for so take the time to read through your contract before signing on the dotted line. Most of the key elements can be negotiated, but you should make sure you know what you want and what the photographer is offering.    
  • Chemistry. This person will literally be following you around all day (and you’re paying them to do that). If you don’t feel comfortable with your photographer, it will show.  Make sure to spend some time with your photographer before you hire them for your big day.  Share a cup of coffee to talk logistics.   If you are still on the fence but you love their work, think about booking them for your engagement photos first.

    It does make sense to find a photographer that can easily record your special day’s intimate moments through photos. My aunt wants to help my niece with her wedding preparations. Maybe they should find an ace photographer before her fated day!
